ShipStation merchants can now ship with even more confidence to some of the world’s largest e-commerce markets, including Canada, Mexico, and the United Kingdom
Great news! Starting today, we’re granting our merchants access to two premium shipping services offered by GlobalPost (the leading international shipping carrier for small and medium-sized businesses) – GlobalPost Plus and GlobalPost Canada DDP.
What is GlobalPost Plus? If you’re shipping from the U.S. to Canada, Mexico, or the UK, GlobalPost Plus is a singular upgrade that does three things. 1) It automatically allocates your shipment(s) to the optimal carrier for cost and speed, 2) It coordinates directly with the destination country’s customs office to pre-clear your shipment, and 3) It allows you to pay taxes and duties on behalf of your customers.
Why we’re excited about GlobalPost Plus. By using GlobalPost Plus, your shipments will get the best combination of speed and value through GlobalPost’s last-mile carrier network. With the option to pay customers’ taxes and duties, you also eliminate surprise fees at delivery.
What is GlobalPost Canada DDP? Are you shipping from the US to Canada through USPS First-Class Mail International®, Priority Mail International®, or Priority Mail Express International®? GlobalPost Canada DDP will make shipping a lot easier. It’s an upgrade that lets you prepay duties and taxes for shipments to Canada, through the USPS, in one low flat rate* (ranging between $7.95 to $9.95). It also eliminates the need to print customs forms and add harmonized tariff codes to your shipments.
Why we’re excited about GlobalPost Canada DDP. Unpaid duties and taxes are one of the top reasons why international packages are not delivered. GlobalPost Canada DDP eliminates these potential hassles and improves your customers’ shipping experience, all while allowing you to use the USPS to ship to Canada.
